An independent source of kitchen design advice & ideas
The Platinum Kitchen Design Service is only really necessary for some bespoke kitchens, where you want to specify the type and number of panels to have in each door, or you want a specific mantel design, or you need the internal layout of a unit specified.
Some of this may be part of the Silver or Gold Services anyway ... but for those services, the specific design changes are superimposed onto a computer visualisation, or the pictures are exported and manipulated with a photo-editing programme.
The Platinum Service is an add-on to any of our other three Design Services. It provides you with traditional pencil sketches of your kitchen, or parts of your kitchen, or individual pieces of furniture. Obviously these are quite time consuming to do ... hence the extra cost. The Platinum Service costs a minimum of £50 extra and usually costs approximately £150 extra for a full set of perspective sketches (depending on the complexity of your kitchen).
Here are a couple of sketches of very different mantels, showing the panelling required:
Kitchens with a classical style often require more detailed sketches:
Bespoke furniture allows quite complicated units to be designed (the CAD programme would have a fit!):
Here's a larder with details of the interior:
Dressers too, often require a detailed sketch, to specify exactly what is required:
You'll find quite a few sketches in the gallery, since we used to use them a lot more. That was before we invested in a more sophisticated CAD programme which can produce pictures for bespoke, inset-framed furniture.
We know that some people love the sketches, though ... so you can add them to your Design Service at any point.
